Tyron Woodley Is Willing To Fight Colby Covington At UFC 230 If His Thumb Recovers

Tyron Woodley Believes He Could Beat Colby Covington Even If His Hand Is “A Little Jacked Up”


UFC 230 still has no the main event of the evening set. Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier should fight at the co-main event. Of course, if Nate doesn’t change his story.

There were rumors of Jon Jones return. Yet, Bones still awaits USADA decision and it is unknown how long the sentence will be. But Tyron Woodley, the current Welterweight champion, says he would like to fight Colby Covington at UFC 230. At the moment, T-Wood has undergone an MRI on his thumb. He waits to see the report of his injury. (via MMAMania.com)

“I’ve got an MRI on my thumb and I’m sending it for a second opinion,” Woodley said. “If I’m good, then I have no issue with fighting in November. The more I fight, the better rhythm I get in the swing of things. Obviously, I just fought, so I’m still in phenomenal shape. I’ve been eating pancakes, shrimp fried rice, brownies – taking a week and eating some bullcrap.

“… It all depends on how severe my thumb injury is. I dislocated it in the first round punching him in the back of the head. I thought it was just jammed.”

Tyron Woodley quickly erased Colby Covington as a dangerous threat. Just read the comment below.

“Think about it: I was going to fight Nate Diaz with a torn labrum,” Woodley said. “He’s not going to try to wrestle me. The only thing he does better than me is dress horribly and wear terrible hats. Outside of that, that’s it. That’s his only advantage – and having extremely corny trash talk.”

Tyron Woodley then sent a message for Colby Covington. The Chosen One believes he could teach Chaos a lesson even if his hand is not 100% fit!

“I would love to fight in Madison Square Garden again,” he said. “Not to sound arrogant, but would never take a fight against Darren Till if not 100 percent confident in both my hands. So I think I could beat (Covington) even if my hand’s a little jacked up.”
